Singapore Transportation

  • MRT

    Singapore Transportation

    The MRT makes travelling around Singapore very easy, convenient, cheap and efficient. We bought a 3 day tourist pass for $20 each plus a $10 refundable deposit. There are also other options. If you miss a train, then there is not long to wait for the next train. The trains can get crowded, so it is a good thing and a necessary thing that they are...

  • Taxis

    Singapore Transportation

    Taxis are surprisingly cheap in Singapore - they cost less than in similar cities elsewhere in the world. A word of warning, though: Don't bother with taxi ranks. They can literally take hours. There's some weirdness with the rates, which make picking up passengers from a taxi rank the last resort for any driver. They'd rather take a call and pick...

  • Changi Airport

    Singapore Transportation

    I've been through Changi airport six times, but only visited Singapore once. It's a major transport hub. It might not be as busy as Dubai or Heathrow, but it's the fifth busiest airport in the world and if you've traveled between Europe and Australia enough times, it's not very likely you haven't passed through this airport at least once. It's the...

  • Buses to Johor Bahru, Malaysia

    Singapore Transportation

    If you want to go straight to Malaysia from the airport, or go to Changi airport from Johor Bahru, there is a bus that runs from the airport to Malaysian immigration in Johor. As this is right in the city centre, right inside the train station, it drops you right there. The problem is that I found it slow, uncomfortable, unreliable, with long wait...

    Singapore Transportation

    Well if you want to fly budget airlines then I think you should try JetStarAsia / Value Air. Its not as cheap as AirAsia but you treated to nice friendly staff and you fly in a descent plane.

    Singapore Transportation

    If you can stand the heat, the traffic and the noise, Singapore is actually quite a walkable city. It's safe, even at night, it's lush green and tropical, flowers abound, and at night it's not too bad. Ok, the air-conditioned MRT is better, but it doesn't always run the way you're headed. I walked a lot when I was there, maybe that was because I...
